Product Overview

This is a collection in translation of recent essays by Tzvetan Todorov, one of the most eminent of todays literary critics. The essays concentrate on the idea of genre, literary or otherwise, and asks such questions as: What is literature? What is genre? Which are the major literary genres? In the first section, Todorov proposes definitions for the notions of literature, discourse, and genre. Following is a general discussion of the two principal literary genres, fiction and poetry. Finally, in the third section of essays, Todorov examines individual authors as case studies: among them Poe, Dostoyevsky, Baudelaire, Conrad, and James. *Author: Todorov, Tzvetan/ Tzvetan, Todorov/ Porter, Catherine *Binding Type: Hardcover *Number of Pages: 148 *Publication Date: 1990/09/28 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.00 x 6.00 x 0.50 inches
